Best Methods To Repair Potholes

Here Are The Best Methods To Repair Potholes on Highways and Roads.

Step by Step Guide

STEP 1

Clean the hole of any debris and remove any looses pieces around the hole(and if possible give yourself a vertical edge around the hole for the Bitumend Coldmix to butt up against – it lengthens the life of the repair)

STEP 2

Fill the hole with Bitumend Coldmix. Form a crown by making the middle slightly higher than the sides. Depending on the size of the repair give yourself a 5-10cm crown. This counteracts the subsidence caused by compacting

STEP 3

Compact – A compactor is recommended for larger holes. Otherwise driving back and forth over it in a vehicle(e.g 4×4) is also very effective. You can also use timber posts to compact the cold mix on smaller holes
